Tasting Room


Level 3 Opening Times and Wine Sales:  From Monday 1 June 2020 till further notice we will be open for wine sales as announced by government recently. Wine lovers are welcome to pop in Monday-Thursday,  09h00-17h00 to purchase wine. No wine tastings allowed and all Covid-19 rules have to be adhered to ie wearing of masks,  social distancing and hand washing or sanitising. Pre-orders preferred by emailing winery@avontuurestate.co.za to request a price list. This will streamline the collection process.

Our modern tasting room and accompanying terrace is still a popular spot for wine lovers to congregate to taste our wines.

“Procuring enough seating for formal tastings and even just during season for our ever-growing number of visitors, has always been a problem,” owner Michael Taberer explains. “Although the outdoor seating is popular, the indoors venue admirably offers flexible hosting opportunities ranging from formal seating at tables to comfy couches and arm chairs.”

The tasting room at Avontuur Estate is open daily, except on Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day and can host small and large groups of up to 24. The hours are: Mon-Fri 08h30-17h00, Sat & Sun, 08h30-16h00.

The tasting fee is R100 for 5 wines excluding the 10 year-old brandy. The brandy can be tasted for an additional R25 or try it in a chocolate cup for R25.

Various specialised tastings and pairings are offered, which change seasonally. A popular option for visitors in the mood for a light lunch is the lavish Cheese or Anti-pasta platters at R130 each which can be enjoyed in the venue or on the terrace.

The cosy tasting room at Avontuur welcomes visitors with fresh new look, but the decor is still in keeping with the family-owned winery atmosphere.  Seating is at the counter on bar stools,  at wooden tables or at the lounge seating inside the venue or during the summer months, outside on comfy furniture overlooking the paddocks and Helderberg.

Regular displays featuring new releases, specially priced wines or just to highlight a theme for eg Valentines Day, Mother’s Day etc keep the vibe exciting and ever-changing.  Our tasting room staff  are highly trained and know our wines inside and out.

Over weekends, we always ensure that we have at least one permanent staff member on duty who are usually assisted by one or more of our regular casual employees. The tasting room can be expanded to the terrace outside the glass doors and in summer these areas are definitely the most popular.

The tasting room is open daily except on Good Friday, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Opening Times:  Monday-Friday 08h30-17h00.  Saturday & Sunday:  08h30-16h00.
